Surprise Proposal - With Jaemie Hillbish Photography.

It is not everyday you get asked to photograph a surprise proposal, even less when it is for your sister. When my soon-to-be brother-in-law Nick asked me about photographing his proposal I knew we had to be sneaky!! We came up with the plan that I would come by to photography a few barns to use as promos for my rustic Christmas mini sessions, perfect right? Well the weather had different plans! It rained and rained every day for over a week. The day came and I headed out to Blackstone, VA with my headlights & windshield wipers on and two clear umbrellas in tow. By the time I reached the farm the sun was just peaking through the clouds.

It was go time!! Looking back we should have came up with a code word because three barns & multiple fields later (with talks of a creek) I was beginning to wonder if it was every going to happen. Then we reached THE soybean field and Nick went down on one knee!!


Before the proposal. Someone may not have wanted to get out of the truck because the ground was so wet.

He almost forgot the flowers he had hidden earlier in the day.

Wishing them both a lifetime of love and happiness together!
